Need your help guys and gals. :)
I have links in excel that invoke internet explorer when I click them. For some reason explorer makes excel minimize to the taskbar. Is there a way for excel to stay maximized after explorer is launched? Mind you it harshly makes excel minimize. I have a dual screen setup and when I click a hyperlink in excel then move the window to the next screen as explorer launches excel is grabbed right from the area I have it with the mouse and slams it to the taskbar lol. Please someone help. :-(

Can you have the website load into a worksheet?
You can dump a website into a worksheet by using a web query.
You could assign a button to call the website and dump the query using macros.

there is an option to cancel screen flickering, so it would still show you the active worksheet you are working on.

make any sense?
not really sure what you need

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
